Attorney General Derek Schmidt recently announced that law enforcement agencies across the state would collect leftover medications for safe disposal Saturday as part of a nationwide effort.
“Unused medications are dangerous for kids, pets, and the environment,” Schmidt said. “Getting these leftover medicines out of the medicine cabinets keeps them from falling into the wrong hands and makes our communities safer.”
Hillsboro Police Department will be accepting unused medications Saturday as well as any other time.
Marion Police Department will not be collecting unused medication Saturday during Old Settlers’ Day activities. However, they accept unused medications for disposal any other time.
Peabody Police Department will not be accepting unused medications on Saturday. They are not a drop-off location for leftover medications at other times either.
